Northrop Grumman Selects SEAKR For Advanced Space Processor

SEAKR’s Wolverine RF Processor

SEAKR has been selected by Northrop Grumman to provide an advanced space signal processor on two new GEOStar satellites to launch in 2022.  This is SEAKR’s second major customer utilizing the Wolverine processor, a new RF reconfigurable processor which can flexibly process 10GHz of bandwidth for a variety of applications. “SEAKR’s Wolverine technology is highly flexible with on-orbit reprogrammable capabilities,” said Amer Khouri, Vice President of Commercial Satellites. “These are key features that our new satellite customers are looking for.”

SEAKR’s RF processor leverages four generations of architectural capability supporting the full spectrum of payload processing performance requirements, with a high level of on-orbit reconfigurable processing capability. Pulling from its established heritage capabilities, strength in RF communications, along with the continuous product and architectural advancement, SEAKR continues to define leading-edge, state-of-practice processing systems in partnership with Government, Civil and Commercial entities. SEAKR’s previous study and prototype advancements have successfully contributed to our customer’s ability to solve complex challenges imperative in advancing capability to meet today’s most daunting mission objectives. Key technologies being deployed and leveraged include: Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) and Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) Technologies, FPGA-based Processing Technologies, and ASIC-Based Processing Technologies.

Diversity is difficult to measure and quantify, given all the aspects and shapes it takes, yet it is easy to witness and observe the lack of it in many fields including the space sector. If the space sector and all its disciplines should be used to help improve life on earth and observe it (amongst other purposes), shouldn't it be represented by all terrestrial individuals equally? In an ideal world, yes! But history and social biases have prevented our progress towards this perfect world, and we find ourselves today with a space sector still dominated by cis white-male individuals.
